Our Expertise and Services
Everything we do is focused around people and property, helping our clients optimise four key objectives and outcomes:
Improving service delivery and integration
Making better use of technology
Making your assets work harder
Embedding change and new ways of working
During the COVID-19 pandemic, organisations have needed to do things differently, including the introduction of widespread virtual, remote, and flexible working.
We can help support the development of your plans for the return of your staff teams to an office environment that meets the new ways of working, providing an efficient integration between physical space, people and technology. Our wider expertise means that we can also help you reconfigure the physical space and implement digital solutions.
Unlocking complex projects
From stakeholder engagement and programme management to developing robust business cases that secure vital resources, our expert team have a track record in unlocking complex and large-scale change projects.
The expertise provided by the gbpartnerships group of companies, means that we can also work with you to deliver the project, from project management of the design, through to construction and ongoing asset management services.
Your facilities are key to our social infrastructure - health, education, and other community services. The needs of your services users are constantly changing. Delivery models change, and the regulatory environment evolves. Nothing stands still.
We can help you actively manage your building and site assets to ensure that you have
up-to-date information, accurate analyses, and robust strategies in place. We help you deliver cost-effectively at all stages of your asset life cycle and can also provide tailored lifecycle asset management services.
Effective infrastructure planning has never been so important, as the health system responds to the COVID-19 pandemic and delivers the vaccination programme. It is also fundamental as we transition into local Integrated Care Systems (ICS).
Our systematic approach to infrastructure planning enables us to better understand our client’s infrastructure baseline, define their needs and develop a clear roadmap of investment to maintain and renew infrastructure in order to respond to changes in the environment and in care. Our broader gbp group expertise means that we can then work with you to deliver the project and embed change and new ways of working.
Integrated community hubs
Community Hubs are large buildings, typically between 7,000 – 12,000 sqm. They bring together a wide range of services that together deliver health and wellbeing to the community: healthcare, social care, leisure, library, community groups, voluntary sector.
This multi-provider aspect alone brings a complexity of people movement within the building, with people accessing a wide range of different services.
If there is the opportunity to provide a new build solution in your locality, especially at scale, then it is essential to look at ways to build in resilience from the outset of the project.
gbpartnerships consult is a diverse and expanding business. Working as part of the wider gbpartnerships group of 60+ staff, our tenacious yet pragmatic team hold a wide range of skills and grounded public sector operational experience from across primary, community and wellbeing health and care; acute, mental health community and inpatient services; local authority leisure, library and education services.
We work hard on the “art of the possible” and solutions to find the optimum way of getting the job done.
